Staff extremely friendly and helpful on what to order! Environment was lively, upbeat, and just positive all around! I would love to... More

Such a pleasure to dine here. The decor and ambience is great for a relaxed meal. The well trained staff are quietly around appearing as soon as you need something. The chef/owner came and chatted with us, made friends with my 3 yr old grandson which I thought was a thoughtful gesture. The food is one of the best I've... More

A few Caipirinhas! A few beers! Great food. This is a casual, almost rustic experience. Parking is an issue. We visited on a weekday, mid-afternoon. Still, it was busy with two families, probably tourists, and a selection of probable regulars enjoying their favorite food and drink. With drink, of course, we enjoyed Bolinho De Bacalhau fried codfish croquette excellent Mandioca... More

This Brazilian bar has 2 ambiences, one indoors and an outdoor patio. It offers typical food from this country, and of course, a wide selection of caipirinhas. We suggest you go there to have drinks with friends, listen so Brazilian music or watch a soccer game; food is nothing special. Miami still awaits for a great place that makes us... More

We happened to be in Miami on Mardi Gras and friends too us to Boteco because they had heard it was a fun place with lots of atmosphere. They heard right. The place was hopping when we arrived around 9 pm, but a hostess led us through the crowd standing in front of the bandstand to a table in the... More

I was missing brazilian food and drinks so I went with my boyfriend for a night out at Boteco in Miami. We drove from Fort Lauderdale and the place was busy on a Sunday night. Maybe I was just unlucky that day, but we had the worst service and I had to leave without drinking even a glass of water... More

Boteco is a cantina off the beaten path with a lively, open-air, and very welcoming atmosphere. It was easy for these visitors to find and had plenty of off-street parking. The service was friendly and helpful with understanding the menu. Big screen TV was showing the NFL playoff game on this Sunday night We had a couple of caipirinhas, shared... More
